Doomed Queen Anne - Young Royals, Bk 3
Author: Carolyn Meyer
Though born without great beauty, wealth, or title, Anne Boleyn blossomed into a captivating woman.

But Anne's ambition proved to be her fatal flaw.

I decided that I wanted to read all of the Young Royals books and began with this one. I believe that most people know the story of Anne Boleyn, and this gave a more in depth version of it. It takes an excellent writer to be able to weave fact and fiction together seamlessly, and Meyer does that. She is able to give life to each historical event, including the final days before Anne's death. This definitely gives a different view of Anne Boleyn than other books, but I believe it is because it is written for young adults. Anne is portrayed more lovingly and slightly less ambitious and power hungry. Meyer doesn't ask the reader to like the character, but Anne is portrayed in a better light than movies and television shows. The most negative features that are shown are the jealousy and competitiveness that grows through the novel, however, in the end she is more human and caring once again. The best part of the story is that it is written as a first person point of view. It draws the reader into the character's world, instead of just stating what is going on. Although it is not completely accurate, it will get students interested enough to do more research on the subject.

I didn't realize that this book was actually for younger kids to read to get a grasp on some of the history, but it was a very easy read and not bad!
